My dad bought this for my 7.5 year old after my son watched the commercial. I was skeptical at first, but this has replaced our Wii Party for game evenings. It isn't for all kids, but my son loves board games and strategy. He plays the standard rules and has had fun experimenting with what happens if he doesn't buy stocks, or tries to sell us property at ridiculous rates. He has a lot to learn, but I also never expected to be explaining stocks or commissions at this age either so it is pretty amazing to me. But like I said, not for all kids as the games are LONG.
My husband and I have a great time with the game too and are looking forward to a quiet evening after the kids go to bed to really war this out.
My one major complaint of the game which does occassionally prevent us from playing is that you can't save a multiplayer game. This is a serious oversight when a short game still lasts a couple hours. I keep hoping there may be a software upgrade that might make it possible in the future.
